I'm betting that they chose not to because if the inaccuracy involved.

Or that they didn't want the forum to rely finding the geoip of your
location, etc, etc. As a coder, I try to stay away from anything that
involves external contact, especially since you can't trust an
external source at all (even if it's your own, really).

But, that's the furthest I've cared to think about it.
